Dear God, Please Let This Be…
By Kathy McCormick 
•more than a page from the calendar
•a year of healing and health
•a year to reach out to someone else in my child’s memory
•the beginning of a new positive outlook
•a year of wondrous new accomplishments
•a year to really show the people in my life how much they mean to me
•the year I finally stop asking why and accept what is
•the year when I start taking better care of myself
•a time to stop dwelling on the shortness of my child’s life and just be grateful I had her at all
•a year to thank You for all that You’ve given me, even that which didn’t seem like such a blessing at the time.
